  • Without freezing, it would be great!

    We’re doing the free trial and I was considering not canceling my subscription because my son loves playing it but every time we try to open it lately, it freezes. I’ve updated the app, restarted my phone and it still does it - quite frustrating.
  • Very glitchy

    The app was working well until last week and now it’s hanging. When it doesn’t hang it refuses for us to pass to the next level. We’ve updated the ipad and app but no luck. Tried reporting the problem but it says I need to link an email address to the account before I can report a problem. When I try and add my email it says I can’t add an email because the account already has one. So I’m stuck with an app that doesn’t work and no way to report or fix it. Very sad
  • My 3 year old loves it

    My 3 year old son loves this app. He usually picks this app before YouTube or Dave and Ava. He likes the story mode a lot along with the painting and color mode.
  • App is crashing

    The app was working great until the latest update. It keeps “loading” the profiles and crashes. Please fix ASAP, my children enjoy this app. Once it’s back up again I will give it a higher rating. Thank you!

    My 5 year old twins love it and it teaches the exact same skills that I see being taught in the school where I work. It’s very customizable, as well.

    My kids loved it until "it stopped working". I tried myself and was surprised how slow it is. I clicked "Storytime" and it took 19 seconds to load and then stopped reacting at all. My subscription is till December and I will not renew.
